How long have you been natural?
Since May 25, 2012
What motivated you to transition? Were you a transitioner or a Big Chopper& why?
I transitioned and then I eventually cut off the straight pieces after 3 months.
How would you describe your hair?
It’s not as long as I would like it to be, but it’s healthy and that’s the most important key for me. I believe my hair is curly and spongey but not too spongey.
What do you love most about your hair?
I love the fact that my hair surprises me everyday. I think of a style in my head and lawd Jesus my hair comes through right in the crunch.
What has been the most memorable part of your journey?
When I pressed my hair in November and my hair didn’t curl back up completely. I could have just died that day. I didn’t, though. I kept doing what I know I needed to and cut the straight pieces off. So essentially I have had 3 big chops because the same thing happened on August 2012 so I’m swearing off flat irons.
Has it been easy or difficult or both?
Hard, hard, hard! Did I say it’s been hard?!
